Information about the trust

Endeavour MAT is a multi academy trust with responsibility for leading three Secondary Schools; a collaborative Sixth Form; and a Teaching School as part of the North West Kent Teaching Alliance. The Trust's schools successfully combine the best of educational experiences with two grammar schools (Wilmington Grammar School for Girls, and Wilmington Grammar School for Boys) and a community secondary school (Stone Lodge School).

The Trust's ambition is to improve the life chances of all students in the local area. In all of our schools, we aim to ensure our students are both exam ready and life ready.

In all Endeavour schools a strong emphasis is placed on encouraging students to be reflective and to embrace challenges, to learn from mistakes and develop the resilience to seek continual improvement. This growth approach can lead to a happy and fulfilling school life and a willingness to embrace change within and beyond school. It nurtures learners who value critique, support each other and feel empowered to drive their own learning. What better way is there to help prepare our students to prosper in an ever-changing world?

We focus our schools on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects combined with the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills as the best route to equip students for their lives and careers in the world of rapid, technology-driven, change. We intend to make sure our students are able to use their subject knowledge in creative and practical ways, so we build strong links with local businesses to support students as they consider their career choices.

Local businesses are involved in helping teachers design projects and provide support within the classroom. They bring new ideas to our Trust and schools and also provide work placements and apprenticeship opportunities. To find out more about us and our schools look at https://www.endeavour-mat.co.uk.
